Not your "run of the mill" independent film.
16 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It would appear by the film's negative feedback thus far that the Michael Bay fans of the world have taken offense to what I consider to be a well crafted independent film.

After reading several favorable critical reviews about Quench over the past year, I was still a bit skeptic when it released on DVD nationally last month. So much so that I decided to rent it at Blockbuster.com, instead of taking a chance of losing my money buying "another" bad indie film. But, soon after Blockbuster notified me that there would be a wait(as all copies were checked out), I went ahead and bought it anyway, sight unseen, to see what all the hype was about. And now, having watched it several times, I must say that this is one of the best independent film experiences I've had in some time.

Quench is a slow burn...not a slow movie in the sense. The pacing is deliberate...always moving forward. The cinematography is beautiful...dark and rich in color. The story is well written and unique...stands out amongst those of other films. Under Parker's direction, nearly all of the cast turns in solid and believable performances. This is all quite an accomplishment for any film shot on such a meager budget. Again, this is a well crafted independent film.

I would like to be able to recommend Quench to almost anyone who loves movies. Unfortunately, I can't. In these days of countless sequels and remakes(some bordering on sacrilege), as well as television's contribution of mindless programming to the masses...people today have lost sight of(or have never experienced) what good cinema is. And that's really sad. Because Quench is just that...good cinema.
